VolunQuest is proud to be the only private organization that allows volunteers to participate as teachers in the public school systems in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Our volunteer teachers teach the national English curriculum to students during regular school hours, and work alongside the full time teachers of Isla Mujeres. Addionally, VolunQuest incorporates the University of Cambridge Young Learner's curriculum into the curriculum, with the goal to certify qualified students in language proficiency.
All of our volunteers go through a professional teacher training and Spanish language course, are supervised, given access to materials and resources, as well as are provided with a letter of participation from the Secretary of Education. This is a unique opportunity for volunteers to gain invaluable experience and references, all while seeing that they are committing themselves to a project that is truly sustainable and making a real difference in the community.
